Everyone, from individuals to the largest organisations, wrestles with the protection of personal, private or confidential information. It’s hard to keep it safe, and the consequences for failing to do – both for the subject of that information and its custodian – can be catastrophic.

Custodians of such information must worry not only about the potential fines, which have become progressively more stringent in the years since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and later the 2018 Data Protection Act came into force; but also about the reputational harm that a data protection mishap, misuse of private information, or breach of confidence can inflict, and the lack of trust that will often accompany any such misstep.

As for the subjects of personal data, or for those whose privacy or confidence is invaded, the speed with which information travels means that they may never be made fully whole; but they will need advice and representation to put things right, at least as far as can be achieved.

At times like this, Outer Temple Chambers’ specialist information law practitioners can help. They have experience at all levels of Courts and Tribunals, dealing with issues of data protection, freedom of information, misuse of private information or breach of confidence – whether they are separate or, as is often the case, conjoined. They understand both the crossovers between these distinct claims, and the differences. Frequently, information law issues emerge unbidden out of other legal issues, such as clinical negligence, employment, commercial litigation, fintech or regulation, and Outer Temple’s deep bench of experience across all these areas means clients can be assured that we can help them with the whole gamut of their legal concerns.

Outer Temple’s information law specialists work with both claimants and defendants: whether they are individuals, or organisations from multinational corporates to public bodies such as NHS trusts and regulators.
